[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 April 2010 20:21 No Comment]

Around 2,000 senior cadres and combatants of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eezham (LTTE) held in custody are to be soon produced in High Court for trial with the sole aim to find them guilty of war crimes and subject them to long-term imprisonment, according to legal circles in Colombo. Meanwhile, persons of an organization called Home for Human Rights (HHR) are already at work to exploit the above situation and fleece money from Tamil Diaspora in foreign countries and International Humanitarian Organizations on the pretext of arranging lawyers to appear on behalf of the Tigers during the said trial, human rights activist lawyers in Colombo said.

The human rights activists who had exposed the ulterior motive of HHR appealed to the relatives of the persons to be produced in High Court for trial and the Tamil Diaspora organizations not to be swindled by HHR.

They further advise the Tamil Diaspora and the relatives of the LTTE cadres and their organizations that they should jointly appoint the right type of lawyers to appear on behalf of the persons produced for trial.

Meanwhile, HHR persons openly claim that their organization is recognized by many including Tamil National Alliance (TNA).

The above organization which does not have anyone proficient in legal affairs holds no record of having engaged in human rights activities during the war.
